Starlink: Battle for Atlas and SoulCalibur VI are among the new video games coming to the Xbox One between October 15-19, 2018.
A packed week on the Xbox One Digital Store sees big new releases from Ubisoft, Warner Bros, and Bandai Namco.
There’s something decidedly retro about Starlink: Battle for Atlas, not least because it comes accompanied by a range of ‘80s-style spaceship toys. Its relatively simple approach is refreshing in an age where many games require players to level up before they can walk ten feet.
Also keeping it simple is Lego DC Super-Villains. Although the Lego formula is certainly showing its age, the DC licence is pretty irresistible. This looks like another accessible and enjoyable game from Traveller’s Tales.
If you’re looking for more brutal pursuits, SoulCalibur VI brings back a host of fan-favourite characters along with a guest appearance from The Witcher’s Geralt of Rivia.
All of this week’s releases are available from the Xbox digital games store, or via the Microsoft web store. Here’s the full release lineup.

We hate to ask, but if you want us to continue writing what others won't, or to keep covering weird indie games, or to be able to give opportunities to new writers – and only if you can afford it – then please consider supporting us on Patreon.
